Steve Evans has received a stadium ban for his behaviour while manager of Crawley

Rotherham manager Steve Evans has been given a six-match stadium ban and fined £3,000 by the Football Association.

Evans was found guilty of "using abusive and insulting words and behaviour towards a participant in or around the dressing room area" when in charge of Crawley following their feisty npower League Two clash at Bradford on March 27.

Five players were sent off after a post-match brawl - Andrew Davies, Luke Oliver and goalkeeper Jon McLaughlin for Bradford, with Crawley duo Pablo Mills and Claude Davis also seeing red.

Evans expressed his disappointment at the decision but added in a statement: "For the good of Rotherham United I accept the verdict and will move on with no further comment."

A club statement read: "Rotherham United acknowledge the decision of the FA today and will work closely with Steve Evans to ensure the penalty imposed does not affect our objectives for this season.

"The club wishes to stress that there will be no further comment on this matter."
